Discovery Blackpool

We kicked off our Lexonik Discovery events in Blackpool on Wednesday May 1st at South Shore Academy. Presenting to a room full of passionate, enthusiastic teachers is always a privilege and this event was no exception.
The purpose of Lexonik Discovery is to gather together existing and prospective Lexonik schools to share our most recent training and developments and discuss current findings and the future. Lexonik Discover Blackpool allowed 22 colleagues from 10 schools to witness a live demo of Lexonik Advance from Lisa Parkinson; listen to and discuss Lexonik implementation with Sarah Ledger and take part in an introduction to our Vocabulary Professional Development unit. This event also gave crucial time for Lexonik leads to discuss their needs with their Regional Trainer Michelle Hicks, highlighting the importance Lexonik place on this supportive face to face relationship between Lexonik and our schools.
Presenting at such an event never gets any less daunting. Speaking and presenting in front of respected peers and colleagues is always nerve wracking, but what never fails to amaze is the enthusiasm in which teachers approach and use the Lexonik methodologies. It’s easy for the nerves to dissipate when you know what you’re talking about has such a positive impact on student progress, teacher development and whole school improvement. In Blackpool the recent Lexonik progress data of 25 months gain speaks for itself, but it’s more than that. It’s the conversations we take part in about student confidence and engagement. It’s about those light bulb moments with staff when they realise that explicit vocabulary and reading instruction truly can unlock meaning in their curriculum and it’s the passion of teachers and SLT alike to drive Lexonik forward to increase its impact.
